Carson Family Search from Maine

My great great grandmother was Mary Ellen Carson born in WI. Her parents were David Morrill Carson and Mary Jane Robinson both born in Maine. David's parents were James B Carson and Mary Polly Greeley. James' parents were William Carson and Hannah Savage. William's parents were Adam Carson and Alice Ellice Anderson. All from Maine. I don't know much about them. Dates seem to get a little missed up going back that far. I would like to know more and hopefully learn about some Irish heritage.…

I am happy to say that there will be a big family gathering in Maine this fall!  Everyone who can will be heading to the family homestead and I hope to meet many cousins who I do not know. Between now and then I will be polishing up my genealogy work and hopefully filling in a few blanks, solving a mystery or two. Of course a few extra days added on to the trek to do some research!
